Benteke agent lifts lid on striker’s stance

Aston Villa's Christian BentekeChristian Benteke was ‘disgusted’ at reports suggesting he would force a summer move away from Aston Villa, according to his agent.

Eris Kismet has spoken out following press reports on Friday which claimed the 22-year-old Belgium international striker would force a move away from Villa Park this summer if the club refused to sell him to an interested party.

Kismet claims Benteke, who scored 23 goals for Villa after joining from Genk in a £7million deal last August and has subsequently alerted the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid and Arsenal, is happy at the club and would never try and push for a move away.

“He has been misquoted. The true line is that Christian does not want to make a war with Villa,” he said.

“He has called me from New York and he is disgusted, I have told him not to speak to any media.”
